Nah, I can go on command even after I just went.  I’m odd though!

This just happened to me a couple months ago! I was like, seriously?! I just peed! I was able to get out a teeny tiny bit though. And I awkwardly had to ask.. ummm is this enough?

@DaneLady:  Same here. But I do agree that it would be useful for docs to say they’ll need a urine sample if that’s known!

@GreenEyedMoon:  yeah, I produce what one doctor called “an impressive volume” Embarassed

I work in a lab and often provide our negative urine controls… I would take like 5 cups to the bathroom and come back with them all filled.  Definitely odd.

Haha!

One time I went into the bathroom with the cup and forgot to use the cup! How does that happen lol?! I paced in the bathroom forever trying to figure out how I was going to tell the nurse without looking like a complete idiot. Ooops :0

Even if I had held it, I can’t pee on demand. I am in that bathroom a good while, especially if I know the nurse is waiting right outside the door….

I take awhile in public bathrooms too. Because I am embarrassed by the pee sound. One time my girl friend and I were in stalls next to each other. We were sitting there awhile until I finally got up the nerve to let go.

She then peed and said, “Ah, thank you Cady! I love you!”

@missgolf:  As someone who works in pathology, I can guarantee you you’re not the first or last person to forget, and certainly not the craziest thing I’ve heard.

Several patients have dropped the cup into the toilet, some people don’t bother to wipe the cup off & they bring it out literally dripping urine onto the floor.  One urine sample from a female teenager had live sperm in it.  Like they had to have humped in the parking lot or something!  We inevitably laugh & get grossed out when there are hairs in the samples.

Me too me too! I don’t know if it’s just nervousness or what, but I have trouble every single time.

This has happened to me a bunch of times.  Now I just operate under the assumption that they are going to ask for a urine sample and drink water and hold it before going to the doctor.
